    Oobr seat belt guide question.

    For those of you who own Oobrs have you noticed that the seat belt guides are destroying your seat belts? This came up on the Clek Facebook page. I have noticed that it is difficult to thread the belt through the guide and that it does seem to snag a bit. The plastic doesn't really line up on the guides (I'll try to get a picture up in a bit). Our Oobr is only used a few times a month so I haven't had issues with the seat belt fraying, but someone else has. Has anyone else noticed this? I contacted a rep at Clek and was told that they are redesigning the belt guides on the new Oobr.

    I don';t have fraying, but it can be difficult to thread the belt into the guide because it gets caught in the seam of the plastic.

    Well, shoot. I'll have to check tomorrow. DD buckles herself in, way back in the 3rd row, so I haven't noticed anything. Ours is in daily use and has been ever since we got one of the first ones off the production line. I am NOT going to be a happy camper if my seatbelt is messed up.
